Bonilla, Cuellar supporting swap of reps’ districts
The candidate preferred by a majority of Reeves County voters for Congress in the 2002 election may soon become the area’s U.S. Representative in Washington, as part of an agreement with the man he narrowly lost to four years ago.
Democrat Henry Cuellar, who lost a close election to Republican Henry Bonilla in 2002 for the 23rd Congressional District seat before winning election to Congress two years later, would become the area’s new 23rd District representative in a deal worked out between the two men and Republican Congressman Lamar Smith.
The plan, which would shift the section of Laredo where Cuellar lives back into the 23rd District while moving the area on the northwest side of San Antonio where Bonilla lives into Smith’s 21st District, was the plan officially submitted by the State of Texas to the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, along with several other proposals from other groups. The changes are being made after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled a Republican-backed plan that moved Cuellar’s area of Laredo out of the 23rd District prior to the 2004 election violated the federal Voting Rights Act.
The court ruled that by adding sections northwest of San Antonio and removing part of Laredo from the district, the plan underrepresented Hispanic voters in the 23rd District by about 100,000 people. The proposed change would allow Bonilla and Cuellar to avoid a repeat of the 2002 election, while the area of San Antonio where Smith lives would become part of the 25th Congressional District, and would potentially match Smith up against Austin Democratic Lloyd Doggett in the 2006 congressional election.
"Last week my colleagues Lamar Smith and Henry Cuellar joined me in filing the only bipartisan compromise to the redistricting impasse,” Bonilla said in a statement released on Friday. “The Bipartisan Congressional Compromise Remedy we submitted is the only proposal which addresses all of the issues raised by the Supreme Court.
"I have been honored to represent the constituents in my district and would prefer to continue to represent all of the communities; however, the mandate issued by the Supreme Court has required the 23rd Congressional District be altered. The plan proposed by my bipartisan colleagues and I provide minimal disruption for future elections while addressing all of the additional concerns.
"All too seldom today are political issues resolved with bipartisan compromise and I believe the agreement we proposed will be a model for bipartisan teamwork in the future."
When the plan was first released on July 13, Cuellar told the Houston Chronicle he and Bonilla wanted to avoid a court-drawn redistricting plan that pits them against each other.
"Bonilla doesn't want that. I don't want that. I'm sure the courts will look at that," Cuellar told the paper. "If you do that, you pair Bonilla and Cuellar together, and you could argue that is retrogression in the sense that you are pitting two minority members together."
Any plan approved would likely require special primary elections to be held in the affected districts to nominate new candidates before the general election. As of now, it’s not known if approval of the new district alignments will be done in time to allow the general election to take place as scheduled on Nov. 7.
Bonilla was first elected to Congress in 1992, in a 23rd District that had been drawn up prior to the election to favor incumbent Albert Bustamantes. But Bonilla won the race after the San Antonio Democrat was indicted and later convicted in a fraud scheme. He won easy re-election in his next four races, but in 2002 faced Cuellar, the former Laredo state representative who resigned as Secretary of State the previous year, following his appointment in 2000 by Gov. Rick Perry.
Cuellar won Laredo by a wide margin, and also defeated Bonilla in Reeves County by a 1,363 to 1,106 vote margin. But Bonilla was able to score a big enough win in the San Antonio area to retain his seat in Congress.
That election was held under a redistricting plan created by a federal court after the Texas Legislature failed to come up with a plan of their own. But after capturing both houses of the Legislature in 2002, Republicans went back and drew up a new congressional district map that in 2004 gave the GOP a majority for the first time in the Texas delegation, and protected Bonilla by moving Cuellar into the 28th District, represented by Democrat Ciro Rodriguez.
Cuellar challenged Rodriguez in the 2004 primary, and after an election that featured missing ballots, recounts and a court challenge, Cuellar was declared the winner by a narrow margin, and was elected to Congress that fall. Since then, he has been one of the more conservative Democrats in the U.S. House, and has drawn anger from some other Democrats for his support of President Bush on a number of issues.
A number of Democrats from both outside Cuellar’s district and outside the state worked this past spring in support of a challenge by Rodriguez, who ran in the primary to regain his seat in Washington. But Cuellar again won the election, this time by a five-point margin.
In contrast to Cuellar, Doggett has been one of the more liberal of the state’s representatives in congress serving out of Austin. The new plan splits Austin into three congressional districts, and Republicans hope that under the proposal that Smith would be able to defeat Doggett in a fall election.
Doggett does have the option of running in the 28th District, which would be an open seat with Cuellar moving over to the 23th District. Members of Congress don't have to live in the district as long as they live in the same state, but there is the chance that Rodriguez will seek to return to Congress out of South Texas by running for the 28th District seat.
Almost all the changes in the map as submitted by the state center around the Austin, San Antonio and Laredo areas. There would be no change to the 23rd District’s boundaries in West Texas, where it runs much of the way along the Pecos River. Ward County and Barstow would remain part of the 11th Congressional District, represented by Midland Republican Mike Conaway.
Among the other plans submitted to the federal court for consideration are two by the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC). The second of those plans would match Bonilla against Cuellar, while avoiding a potential election between Smith and Doggett in November. Doggett would remain in the 25th Congressional District, while the 28th District would be moved north and would again be an open district in the next election.
LULAC’s Plan A would keep Bonilla and Cuellar in separate districts, and would put all of the Laredo area and other nearby counties into Cuellar’s 28th District. The 23rd District would include more of south and east San Antonio, while again avoiding a head-to-head match up between Smith and Doggett. Several other plans also would avoid match-ups between any of the four current congressman.
Commissioners OK prison payments, hires
Lease and maintenance payments were approved, along with new personnel for the Reeves County Detention Centers by Reeves County Commissioners, during their regular meeting Monday morning.
Commissioners approved lease payments for RCDC I&II in the amount of $495,000; maintenance reserve payment for RCDC I&II in the amount of $29,166; RCDC III lease payment in the amount of $345,226 and RCDC III maintenance reserve payment in the amount of $29,166.
In addition, the group approved new personnel and promotions at both facilities, after approving a number of other new hires for all three units at their last meeting, held on July 10.
At that time new hires at RCDC III included: Amy A. Aranda, Stephen C. Aranda, Rachael J. Duarte, Jeremiah V. Jurado, Enrique E. Mata, Daniel P. Rubio, Romeo D. Santos, Angelica M. Morales, Michael Sheblea, Brittany A. Lobstein, Christopher Celaya, Hector Lozano, Danielle N. Garcia and Erica D. Franco.
New hires for RI&II, approved during the July 10 meeting were: Gilbert Carrillo, Linda J. O’Neil, Osmond E. Chambers, Paula Bejarano, Alfredo Herrera, Santos Castaneda, Antonio Carrillo, Thomas Cavazos, Michael Rosadino, Helen Raber and Blanca Roman.
“We’re always looking for individuals that would like to work at the facility,” said RCDC III Warden Martin McDaniel. “All they need is a high school diploma and to be drug-free.”
The prison is facing a shortage of guards with the coming expansion, after the county reached a 10-year, $200 million deal with the U.S. Bureau of Prisons to house federal inmates at RCDC III. The move will require an increase of about 50 percent in the number of beds at the prison, and will boost pay scales for guards and other workers at the RCDC III unit up to the federally-mandated rates paid for similar positions in the RCDC I and II units.
The Bureau of Prisons agreed to utilize 1,400 beds at the RCDC III, an effort that has been ongoing by both local and state officials to secure a long-term deal for the $40 million unit, which has been housing prisoners under a contract with the State of Arizona since February of 2004.
During Monday morning’s meeting, the group approved: promotions for Velma Payan, to case manager at RCDC III, going from $22,880 a year to $30,000 and Anna Ortega to case management coordinator, from $36,083 to $42,500 a year.
New hires at RCDC I&II include: Joerichard Hinojos, Barry Bordayo, Hector Aguilar, Lydia Perkins, Edgar Villescas, John C. Millan, Adrian Montano and Liza A. Chavez, as correctional officers at $31,179.
Joel T. Rodriguez was promoted to Laundry Specialist at $31,179 and other promotions included: Robert Shaffer, Chriselda Florez and Amy Abila as activities lieutenants at $36,083 and Stephen Apolinar as operation lieutenant at $38,250.
In other action, commissioners approved a payment to Howard’s Mechanical in the amount of $202,195.
“That will leave us with a balance of $344,786, everything has checked out and is in order,” said county auditor Lynn Owens.
A permit for Dawson Geophysical was approved during the regular meeting.
“They’re trying to do some exploration work on four different tracts in Toyah,” said county commissioner precinct 1 Roy Alvarado.
Alvarado said that they will pay the county for the use of the land.
“There are three that belong to the county and one is half the county’s and half the state’s, so we will get 50 percent for the fourth one,” said Alvarado.
Commissioners also agreed to declare some election equipment as salvage. county clerk Dianne Florez said that it was equipment that was used for the punch card elections.
“Debbie (Thomas from the West of the Pecos Museum), wanted to know if she could have one of the demonstrators for the museum,” said Florez.
“I don’t see a problem with getting rid of this equipment, since the state doesn’t want us using it anymore,” said Owens.
Third guard in RCDC probe given probation in plea deal
A third former guard at the Reeves County Detention Center entered a guilty plea in return for a probated sentence in U.S. District Court in Pecos, while another guard has received a pre-trial diversion following her indictment for violations at the prison reported earlier this year.
Matthew Isaac Valencia, 23 received three years of unsupervised probation as his sentence, handed down on Thursday by U.S. Magistrate Durwood Edwards. Valencia was indicted with, and received the same sentence as another former RCDC guard, Oliver Isaac Zermeno.
Zermeno pled guilty on July 11 to one count of providing/possessing contraband in prison, a misdemeanor, and was sentenced to three years of unsupervised probation and a $500 fine. Valencia, 22, accepted the same plea deal from the government on Thursday. Under the agreement, prosecutors dismissed a more serious charge of bribery, which could have brought a maximum of 15 years imprisonment. The misdemeanor charge carried a sentence of up to one year’s imprisonment.
The other guard involved in the RCDC investigation, in which indictments were returned by a federal grand jury last month, was Magdalena Marie Mendoza, 24, of Pecos. She faced two counts of abusive sexual conduct, but according to court records was given a pre-trial diversion in lieu of pleading guilty. Under the agreement, the incident will not be placed on the court record if there are no further incidents involving Mendoza over the next 12 months.
Another former RCDC guard, Pablo Baca Briones, 38, was given five years of unsupervised probation and a $500 by Edwards for smuggling non-contraband items to inmate Jaime Cervantes, who received an additional 90 days on his current prison term during sentencing last Tuesday.
The two other guards indicted last month, Sarah G. Mata, 35, and Vanessa Valles-Valenzuela, 23, also pled guilty during hearings last Tuesday, but will not be sentenced until late September. Mata pled guilty to Count 2 of a three-count indictment, charging her with bribery. Valles-Valenzuela, pled guilty to the only count against her, sexual abuse of a ward.
Workforce rise causes increase in jobless rates
June unemployment in Reeves County jumped eight-tenths of a percent over the totals for May of this year, according to figures released on Friday by the Texas Workforce Commission. The number was similar to other counties across the state, as the end of the school year in Texas added more people to the labor force.
The TWC’s numbers on jobs and employment within the county remain at odds with the area’s sales tax figures over the past year, but did show an upward trend in the number of jobs from May. The growth in oil and gas related businesses has caused local sales tax collections to rise by over 10 percent on average compared with a year ago, but the TWC’s employment numbers to show fewer people working in Reeves County and fewer people in the local labor force than in June of 2005, a downward trend that has continued throughout the area’s economic recovery of the past two years.
Last month’s figures showed a total of 4,340 people in the county’s workforce and 3,992 employed, for an eight percent unemployment rate. In May, the TWC said there were 4,174 people in the labor force and 3,872 employed, for a 7.2 percent jobless rate, while in June of 2005, there were 4,413 people in the workforce and 4,032 employed, for an 8.6 percent jobless rate.
The county’s unemployment number remains higher than the state average and that of most surrounding counties, and most also showed a rise in their unemployment rates for the month, at the same time the number of jobs and workers increased due to the increased labor pool following the end of the school year.
Midland County’s unemployment rate rose from 3.5 to 4.1 percent from May to June, as the city added seven hundred people and 300 jobs to its workforce. A year ago, Midland’s jobless rate was 4.2 percent, but during that time, the TWC said the area’s largest city has added 4,000 workers and 3,500 jobs to its labor force.
Ector County’s unemployment rate was up from 4.3 to 4.8 percent, with an increase of 800 jobs and 400 workers. Since June of 2005, when unemployment was at 5.2 percent, Ector County has seen an increase of over 2,800 jobs and just under 2,800 workers.
Andrews County’s rate increased from 4.1 to 4.8 percent in June, as the number of workers was up by about 100 while the county added just under 70 jobs. Brewster County’s rate increased from 3.5 to 3.9 percent. With the end of the semester at Sul Ross State University, the county actually saw a drop in its workforce of eight people, while the county also lost 34 jobs. Crane County’s rate was up from 5.7 to 6.3 percent, as the number of jobs in the county remained unchanged while the workforce grew by 10. Culberson County’s rate was rose from 3.8 to 4.3 percent, with an increase of 73 workers and 61 jobs from May.
Howard County’s unemployment rate jumped 5.6 to 6.4 percent last month. The county added 187 jobs while the labor force was up by just under 300 workers. Pecos County rate of 5.9 percent was a half a percent higher than in May, as the county added 390 workers and 232 jobs. In Ward County unemployment was up from 5.3 to 6.2 percent, as the workforce was up by 155 people and the number of jobs increased by 105. Winkler County’s unemployment rate rose from 4.9 to 5.5 percent in June, with the county’s workforce up by 74 people while the number of jobs rose by 53.
Presidio County’s jobless rate remained the highest in the area, increasing from 11.9 to 13.3 percent last month. Presidio added almost 200 workers and 132 jobs from May, while Loving County, with the fewest residents of any U.S. county, was the only one in the area to see a decline in its unemployment rate. Loving saw rate fall to 12.9 percent from 11.1 percent, as the county went from having 31 workers and 27 employed to having 36 workers, with 32 of those employed.

Darla Blackstock, Kathy Hurley, Robin Prewit, John Grant and Tommy Jackson head this year’s star-studded cast.
It should be great fun as always. Performances will be held at the high school and are scheduled for Thursday at 7 pm, Friday at 7 pm, Saturday at 2 pm and Sunday at 2 pm. Friday night’s performance includes a barbecue supper prepared by David Kington.
